    I'm a first year student studying psychology and honestly I feel lost already. I have exams in January and I feel like I only remember about 2% of what I've learnt already. I don't see how I can remember everything from lectures. After lectures I go to the library and write notes and everything but it feels like too much for my brain capacity.

    What about getting a dictaphone? I have the same problem my memory is awful and I just can't retain much info at all, so I invested in a dictaphone and it's helped me so much, I just listen back to the class each night and write notes without rushing or missing bits. I'm not at university level yet but hopefully next year.
